We had a fantastic week last week celebrating the arrival of Spring and kicking off The Mint Museum’s annual fundraier- Room to Bloom. Our Symposium this year featured none other than Mary McDonald. She is even MORE funny and pretty and COOL than she comes across on her Bravo show– if that is even possible. Seriously she is a riot and so friendly and fun. Her talk was so inspiring and hilarious. She is a true original!  We were able to meet her and spend some time with her during her visit in Charlotte. And of course we had to bejewel her! Her top picks are below.


Here we are before her talk. How excited am I? Embarrassing!


We created the stage for Mary McDonald’s presentation out of fabrics from her Schumacher line.

Blue and White in honor of Mary McDonald!

Veranda covered the event and donated gift bags with all sorts of surprises!

Here we are the next day in a secret back room at the Mint Museum. They were previewing art – again I am REALLY excited in this picture….

I really think Mary should get her own show. I would watch it all the time. Wouldnt you!?
